COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A 2001 Silver Medal Winner at the North American Brewers' Association competition. A deep-copper colored medium - bodied ale. Its fresh flavor is smooth and carefully balanced with a nice mellowness and hint of caramel malt balanced by medium hop bitterness. It is an all malt beer that is naturally carbonated. A very drinkable beer all on its own and pairs well with all kinds of foods.

On draft at the brewery. Clear amber pour, with an off white head. Grain, biscuit, lightly grass, watery, and a bit nutty. Decent for an amber.

12 oz single bottle from Total Wine & More - Gilbert, AZ. Clear amber appearance with a small, lingering beige head. Aroma of generic caramel malt, nuts, sweet toffee and light hops. Similar flavor, sweet and grainy with light hop bitterness. Light to medium body with a slight watery feel. OK.

Taster. Light Amber with minimal head. Light on flavor, not much hop or malt presence... Weak batch?

pictoman (1046) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2015
Poured from 12 fl oz bottle. Clear, golden amber with quickly dissipating off white head. Biscuit and toffee malt with a bit of caramel. Very thin body, almost watery, slight oil texture. Nice flavour, but far too light.

arminjewell (9567) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, watery cardboard, biscuit, hints of slight caramel with a touch of grass. Taste was a mix of grass, bread, biscuit into a bit of grain, husk, cereal, finishing slightly sweet.

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2015
[Bottle] Clear copper pour with a huge amount of fizzy head that condenses down to nothing in a few seconds. Aromas of caramel, toffee and oxidation/paper. Sweet grains, stale grassy hops, soap, cardboard and some vegetable notes in the flavor. Very overcarbonated. Thinking I may have had a bad bottle, so I will try to re-rate at some point. As is, this is damn near a drain pour. Tasting notes from 8/2014.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Nice pour, with dark copper color and light head, small bubbles. Light lacing. Aroma light and malty (biscuity), good enough. Overall, too sweet, and not a caramel dark molasses sweetness, instead its like a corn syrupy taste or something - adjuncts? Its a bit cloying, but malt backbone is present and fine overall.

"another non-offensive but very simplistic brew from Oak Creek. I enjoyed it more than several other beers Ive rated right around, but its just too simple (like a carmel malt kit) to score average or better. really no hops to speak of, maybe even less than the brown. Semi-sweet malt flavor is a little muddled. Again, not a bad beer, but like something one would make with a kit."

Tried this in Sedona as part of my buy local concept. No head and low carbonation. Big notes of rotted detritus and card board. Had a syrupy caramel flavor undertone.
